Nativity Family Stand-Ups
Cute for Children's Decor on a Budget
Very cute. Just the right size for our church preschool hallway at Christmas time. Needed hot glue gun to reinforce the supports, but it was easy and worth it. Shipped quickly and arrived in good condition. Kids love it.

Bought this 3 yrs ago. We set it up in our living room for Christmas every year. Yes there are creases from where each piece folds in half to be stored in the box. I don't see a way around this unless they sent it in a really tall box which would increase shipping costs. I really like the colors & their friendly faces (not creepy or weird like some I've seen). They are thick cardboard so they can get bent on the edges & definitely should NOT be used outdoors. My only complaint is the way the cardboard is used to have them stand up in the back. The cardboard on baby Jesus has gotten weakened in the back so it's a little more difficult to get it to fully extend the way that it should. Considering buying a 2nd set as a back up since I would hate for them to discontinue it & for ours to become unusable someday.

Not durable or high quality
Disappointed when I received these standups and initiated a return right away. This is definitely not for outdoor use at all. Indoor use ONLY as the cardboard is not really sealed and not high quality in my opinion. Received in folded form which resulted in lots of unattractive and irreparable crinkles. Also the standups were very bulky and seemed a lot larger than advertised. To their credit, Oriental Trading customer service were friendly and efficient when it came to the return request. Very leery of Oriental Trading now though since this was my first purchase...Don't recommend this product unless maybe it goes on sale for dirt cheap (like $5)

I bought this for Christmas for our Sabbath room decorations. When I received them I was Not Happy at all. Joseph had white spots on the front of him, and the card board back had completely come unglued. This is what stands him up, Mary's backing was the same way, almost completely torn off. I realize that they are just card board and dont expect them to last forever, but not being able to use them at all, and having to take the time to ship them back, it kinda wasnt worth it. I didnt have to pay for shipping, customer service was great about that, but I do wish the backing was held on better, I also ordered a donkey which also sent back 36/2093 item number, the ears on the donkey were all bent up and flimsy, not being picky, just frustaded at that point.

I thought this item was a very poor quality for the money. the edges of the cardboard were curled and starting to separate when I took it out of the box.

Very nice looking nativity for the $$
I bought this set for the Christian Daycare where I work. They arrived quickly, are very colorful, detailed and sturdy. The only problem is for shipping and storage they fold in half and I had a bit of trouble getting the kink out of the folded parts. If I had opened them ahead of time and laid them out flat with something heavy on them for a day or two, it may have worked better, but I put them right up so they are bent back a smidgeon. A little of the edges were bent down, but again I needed to get them on display and who's to say that won't happen over the next year in storage.
